very much a significant amount of bitter hops on the palate. Not so much that you suck air in through tangy lips, but thatís a noise thatís making itself heard. (it does say on the label.....) That pine aroma seems to carry through to the taste, which is very long as a taste.

Fresh NZ hops in the aroma - oily and fruity notes. Almost clear golden color. Small white head, perfect lacing. Nice thick body, not exactly full but close to that. Itís a bit to sweet in taste. There is a big lack of bitterness which would counter the sweetness. Itís definitely not a session beer, more like setting and sipping one. Very good one.

500 mL bottle. Clear light amber pour, couple fingers of semi creamy head. Big hop aroma (and taste), very tropical, grassy. Excellent, wish I had had a west coast brew to compare it to.

I just love it. The smell of citrus fruits and flowers. Rich ambler color and its subtle caramel aroma is also very attractive. Malty and hoppy.

8.8%ABV. Imperial IPA.
Tapped out a rich amber. 16įSRM.
Nose has nice rich pine freshness. There is also the aroma of ripe pineapple and sweet citrus, like ripe tangerines or Yuzu. There is also a residual sweet maltiness to the nose. Very inviting.
Mouthfeel is soapy. The palate is graham cracker, caramel, burnt sugar and toasty malt sweet. A good base upon which to taste the hops which are pine, grass, light resin and sap.
Finish is medium and satisfying.
Goes on Favorites List!

Subtle caramel aroma is very attractive. Clear golden color grabs your eyes and a very smooth malty taste is very well balanced with slightly bitter taste. Better than Iíve expected!

Poured into Teku from bottle. This is a strong beer. A heavy one for hop lovers, not my particular style. Aroma is sweet with bitter hops. Thin white head. Solid for this style.

Served in 500ml bottle at THE BEER MASONS on Koh Tao, aroma of caramel and pine, nice dry and bitter, just the way i like it.
If you fancy IIPA this is the one.
